Shields struck out 10 while firing six shutout innings. He allowed allowed just one hit and no walks in his fourth start of the spring. He has allowed just one earned run over 14 2/3 innings pitched.
Broxton threw 38 pitches in a bullpen session on Friday as he continues to work his way back from right forearm surgery. He had surgery in August after posting a 4.11 ERA over 30 2/3 innings in 2013.
Furcal was lifted for a pinch-runner in the bottom of the third inning. "It's the same. Nothing crazy," he said, per the Sun Sentinel. He was sidelined since March 10 with the injury. No word on when he'll be able to return for the Marlins.
Iglesias, who came to the rescue both at the plate and in the field via trade last year when Johnny Peralta was suspended, had lost at-bats this spring to shin splints. He had received just two in exhibition play. But the severity of the injury had yet to be revealed.
Rumors that the Tigers will pursue free agent shortstop
Odorizzi gave up just one earned run on two hits in 3 2/3 innings. He walked three and struck out two. His spring ERA remained at 2.25.
The always unpredictable Joe Maddon is also considering Cesar Ramos, Erik Bedard and Nate Karns for the last spot in the rotation.
Sizemore is batting .308 with four singles in 13 at-bats and has earned increased playing time. Bradley continues to struggle with a .167 mark in 30 at-bats.
"We came into camp as Jackie as the guy to start in center field and I don't think anything has radically changed that thought," John Farrell said. "But we can't deny that Grady Sizemore has looked very well in camp. We're still trying our arms around his durability."
Sizemore has not played a full season since 2008 as knee injuries and various other ailments have robbed the former perennial all-star with the Indians of his reputation as a workhorse.
Volquez, who is coming off a miserable walk season with the Padres and Dodgers, was mauled by the Rays, who were using their starters. He yielded five hits and two earned runs with two walks in 3 1/3 innings. He has given up 13 earned runs in 12 1/3 innings this spring for a team-worst 11.00 ERA.
He is currently penciled in as the fifth starter, but his rotation spot won't be secure unless he improves drastically.
It's hard to believe
Kelly rebounded from a poor start to the spring by giving up just one earned run on four hits in 5 1/3 innings. His control, with which he had been struggling, was fine. He walked none and struck out three.
The 25-year-old Kelly won 10 of 15 decisions a year ago with a 2.69 ERA.
